Not sure whether to call this a banana bread / breakfast cake. Whatever the name might be, this is an absolutely delicious bread made completely with healthy ingredients ( read unrefined) and can be given to your kid without any guilt. This has wheat flour, oats, brown sugar, eggs, banana and ghee which makes it a hearty wholesome breakfast bread. If you bake this in a loaf tin, you can toast the slices and serve with your favourite spread at the side. I baked it yesterday for my breakfast and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This is a simple breakfast wheat flour oats banana bread with very little sugar. I actually posted an eggless banana bread and converted it to egg based recipe yesterday. So if you like to see the eggless recipe, check here. Make sure to use a small banana. I see that readers go with whatever banana they have and end up with a mushy bread. If you happen to have a large banana, use only half of it and eat the remaining! Though I bake a lot everyday, I don’t bake that regularly for ourselves apart from breads. So it was a wonderful treat yesterday. As it is tiny, we ended up finishing it of as soon as it came out of oven. Do try and let me know how you liked it. Use any type of nuts/ seeds/ dry fruits for topping or even leave it plain. It tastes good.
